Darkest Moment by Tim015 Darkest Moment by Tim015
"You betrayed me, Sister. You promised we would rule together! But instead, I am cast aside, feared by those who fear my night and love your day!"
"No longer will I stand in your shadow. I will darken your sky so my subjects might behold the glory of the night!"


And here it is....my first original piece, and my 1000 watcher special! I hope it is worth the wait for you all and shows that I deserve your watching :P

There is no tracing here, aside from Celestia's wings, which are a modified version of a drawing by ~BlitzPony.
Luna was completely original, with some guidance by ~thediscorded.
This image was created using a metric tonne of references, and a obscene amount of nagging for opinions from these awesome people:
~Yanoda , ~thediscorded, ~Pirill-Poveniy, *Kired25(For the title too :P) and *Agamnentzar, and the rest of the crew over at the #MLP-VectorClub. If you haven't already watched these awesome people, go do so now! You will not be disappointed :3

The stars were created using my Starfield Illustrator Brush, which you can find here: tim015.deviantart.com/art/Star….
You can now also buy this image in order to access the source file. However, you are not allowed to re-upload this image to your own account, or under any other name besides my own.

EDIT: I went back and changed a few things, ranging from the stars, shading and lighting, as well as some changes to Luna. Give me your thoughts on the updates!

Simplistic style but powerful impact! Both of these ponies show a force of power: Luna's a brash full on assault, while Celestia's a little more calculated and pinpointed. The "Center of Impact" is very well done, as well as showing their unique abilities through symbolistic lightning and plasma.
All in all, very well done! ...probably will use this for inspiration for my fan project Triune.

I just hope I can do this picture justice when I replicate it with my Triune versions.

Can't tell if this is hate/anti-Celestia art or not.

It's neither actually. It's my interpretation of the first battle that they had when Luna began to turn.

Alright... I guess it the fact she isn't NMM is what made me think otherwise. (Plus Luna's dialog seems to me to be referring to her life in the new millennium rather than the old)

I think the most dramatic part of this picture is that Luna isn't even Nightmare Moon.

Epic picture of epicness!!! Awesome job! I always love picturs like these! I love how you made their wings, especially Celestia's and the place of collide for the magic is beautifully done! Looks like a solar and lunar eclispse on either side. That's awesome.

That does look awesome! Although, I think that if you were going for "light versus dark", it might have been more effective to make Luna's magic darker than the void of space, but somehow visible.

I also think that Luna's tail looks a bit too misshapen. Maybe too straight, with the curves having too little an effect on the shape? I think you went for the 'speedy movement' aesthetic, but I think that could be changed to 'aggression' or 'agile movement'. This is just what I think though. Everything else looks :soawesome:
